NEW YORK, Aug 13, 2009 / FW/ — Available only during a limited time and in limited numbers, the Swarovski Evanescent Fall 2009 / Winter 2010 collection elevated everyday items into glamorous jewellery that highly desirable and highly covetable.
The KEY, an ubiquitous object, something we carry everyday has been turned into a fashionable theme. With the “Secrets” key, Swarovski evoked the memories of preciously guarded secrets between two individuals during the era when keys were used to open jewelry boxes and old-fashioned diaries.
The gold-plated “Secrets” pendant features a delicate key in a crystal pave finish, which hangs from a mysterious bi-colour necklace comprising two intertwined chains. One is gold plated, the other is rhodium plated, and together they offer an understated combination of materials and colors.
A second striking key design can also be found in full crystal pavé on a rhodium-plated chain. It is the must-have fashion accessory this winter.
If the key is about SECRETS, the “LUCK” necklaces are about providence and good fortune.
The “Luck Heart” necklace symbolizes love and has gold-plated pendants on a long chain. At the end of the chain is a cut-out gold plated heart, a crystal pavé arrow in Siam and Light Siam, an angel’s wing in clear crystal pavé and a droplet set with a clear crystal.
Equally symbolic, the “Luck Star” necklace has an explosion of faceted and set crystal stars in various tone-on-tone colors on a rhodium-plated chain. At the centre of the cluster of stars is a pavé crystal medallion, out of which a small star has been cut, and a delicate black ribbon adds contrast.
This abundance of good luck charms is an essential piece for taking on winter 2009/10 in total serenity.
Still, it’s not just keys and hearts; Swarovski has created the “MAGNOLIA” pendant in tribute to a more romantic interpretation of winter.
Transparent and delicate, the motif of this highly feminine flower is featured on a fine gold-plated chain. The pendant itself is gold plated, featuring miniature pavé crystals and is offered in two sizes.
The versatility of Swarovski’s jewelry means that the piece can be worn either independently in large or small size, or grouped together with other items according to your mood. A stunning pair of pierced earrings completes the elegant “Magnolia” ensemble in a manner that is as laid back as it is refined.
